Questions and Answers About Cosmetic Dentistry

Question: How do I remove teeth stains?

Answer: In most cases this will be done with teeth whitening. We use a system that employs both in-office and at-home techniques. First, an initial office treatment. Then, the patient receives a set of trays he/she fills with bleaching gel and wears at home for about 30 minutes to an hour a day. Finally, a last office treatment.

Question: What if my teeth are misshapen?

Answer: If you have problems with the shape of your teeth we can use dental bonding. A composite resin is placed onto the tooth and shaped as it cures under a light. We can fix chipped teeth and close gaps between them as well.

Question: How do I fix uneven teeth?

Answer: We can employ porcelain veneers to correct the appearance of minor alignment problems. We can also use Invisalign to fix minor misalignment using a series of clear plastic aligners. Dr. Calcagno is actually an Invisalign Premier Preferred Provider due to her experience correcting smiles with the clear aligners.

Question: What’s the first step in improving my smile?

Answer: First, give us a call. We offer a free cosmetic consultation, during which we examine your smile and discuss your thoughts on smile improvement. We can then recommend one or more procedures to improve the beauty of your smile. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit, then please contact our office today.
